Boy, every time I think I've got a handle on this whole blogging thing, life happens and I don't get to my blog for a few days. *SIGH* We had a wonderful weekend last weekend, but it was a very busy weekend and that continued all week this week. All that said, I did get photos of last week's groceries and this week's groceries to share with you all!
Here's what we bought last Saturday (January 18). We spent approximately $27 on this (it was $26 and change but I don't remember the exact amount).
Since it's a little hard to see everything in the photo here's the list: 8lb red grapefruit, 10lbs oranges, 1 dozen eggs, 2 gallons of milk, 2 packages shredded and 1 block Kraft cheese, 1 package brown sugar, 1lb carrots, 1 container Smart Balance, and 1 packet each Bob's Red Mill Flax Seed Meal and Wheat Germ. I use the flax seed meal and wheat germ occasionally in cooking and use it regularly in making granola and I was completely out. We still have plenty of everything except milk left from this trip.
Here's what we bought this week:
